I didn't want to ignore leap day. It does only come once every four years.
Which is what inspired the reasoning behind this post. I want to encourage you to do something crazy for dinner tonight. What am I going to do? I'm going to serve cookies for dinner.
Leap day only comes around once every four years so, I think on that time table, you're kids won't be malnourished or suddenly become obese.
This is the kind of thing that memories are made of. Your kids won't forget that you served cookies for dinner (or whatever crazy thing you serve), and it will be a memory that lasts with them for a lifetime. I was just talking to a friend today that said that one time her parents allowed them to have cake for dinner and how great it was to have it for that day. And she's an adult now with two kids of her own. But she remembers.
So make some memories tonight. Start a family tradition. Get your family closer together and enjoy the treat while you're at it.
So...what are you making for dinner?
